The coins reproduced for these earrings are taken from an original Edward III quarter-noble, a gold coin struck shortly after 1344. During Medieval times coins were made by hand using an iron punch called a die. Two dies were needed for each coin, one showing the heads side and one showing the tails. A piece of silver or gold was placed between the dies and a sharp hammer blow to these would create a coin.
